For as long as the beauty industry has existed, it has been associated with words like “vain” and “frivolous.” Here at Byrdie, however, we have a different perspective. The thing is, when we talk about hair, makeup, and skincare, we’re not really talking about hair, makeup, and skincare. We’re talking about what that specific style, shade, or product can do for the person wearing it. And if it happens to accentuate a person’s natural beauty while giving them added confidence or bolstering their personal identity, well… we don’t think that’s so vain or frivolous. And we think everyone should be able to experience that.

There’s so much more to being a beauty junkie than a love of products—there’s an ethical, social, and environmentally conscious aspect to it as well. In fact, as a culture, we are consuming more consciously, and we are looking for more ways to give back. And there are so many beauty-related organizations that allow us to help out other people and the planet. Here, we’re highlighting seven incredible charities (and general practices) to support in your quest to give back through beauty. Keep scrolling to see what they are.
